When Michelle Hamill and her husband Dan learned that she was pregnant with twins, they were flooded with a range of emotions. Of course, they were delighted, but they were also overcome with fear. You see, Michelle and Dan are little people, and because of this, they had to worry about pregnancy risks that larger people don’t even have to think about.
Michelle and Dan had to come to terms with the fact that because they carried the dwarfism gene, they had a high chance of transmitting the trait to their kids as well. Of course, there’s nothing at all wrong with being different, just like this baby who looks nothing like her parents, but if the babies inherited the gene from both parents instead of just one, there was the possibility that they wouldn’t live very long after birth. To complicate matters further, Michelle developed a health problem that put the twins at risk while they were still developing in the womb. But luckily, a miracle happened, and both babies turned out to be perfectly healthy. And they’re little, just like their mom and dad!
Having twins carries way more risk than carrying just one baby, but just like these parents whose baby came back to life after seemingly being born dead, Dan and Michelle were lucky enough to have not just one, but two healthy, beautiful children. It’s incredible to see such amazing people beat the odds to have such a lovely family.
